Spring Festivals

Saturday, June 4th, 2011

Life has finally slowed down this Spring.  Not that it hasn’t been a wonderful ride.  Because it has.  I have attended and presented at several Pagan festivals to include PhoenixPhyre Phamily Phestival, Old Earth Gather, MoonDance, Pagan Unity Festival (PUF) and a couple of smaller events.  The conclusion that I have come to is that each festival has a spirit of its own.  The things that remain constant, however, are that I meet new friends and renew old acquaintances with many wonderful people.  I have made many new friends this year and by the same token, it has been wonderful to see old friends.  The really fun thing is that people show up where I least expect them.  People that I know from one festival and don’t expect to see again until the same time next year suddenly appear in my peripheral and good times get even better.

 

The second constant is the I get to share my knowledge with others at these venues.  It is so rewarding to have so many people attend my workshops and linger afterwards to talk and share ideas.  It is especially rewarding when I see familiar faces (people that have taken the workshop previously) show up to go through it again.  I do love to teach and facilitate workshops.  I also attend other workshops and learn from them.  Not to mention the fact that I learn from my attendees and students.  The more challenging the questions and comments the better it is and the more I learn.

 

I have enjoyed some fantastic music this year also.  S.J. Tucker is one of my favorites and I enjoyed her music at PUF.  I really enjoyed Spiral Rhythm and Telling Point.  So much good Pagan entertainment out there.

 

I am already have bookings for this Fall and next Spring and will post the fall schedule soon.
